Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap. Reality TV show bosses are always trying to bag the biggest names for their shows and half the time, they end up with some ex soap stars too. However, they can forget about knocking at the door of Emmerdale star Alex Carter.
The actor, who plays Jamie Hope in ITV1’s rural drama, has admitted he has no plans to follow in the footsteps of Letitia Dean, Sid Owen or Dean Gaffney and take part in a reality TV show. Speaking to Teletext, the actor said flatly: "I wouldn’t do Dancing On Ice or Strictly Come Dancing – I’d rather put my limbs through a blender."
However, he admitted that he could be persuaded if his career takes a downturn, saying: "Well if I was out of work, I’d probably jump at the opportunity!" Alex, that’s the whole point of reality shows! Who goes on them if they’re at the top of their game? If you’re wondering where you’ve seen him before, he also used to star in Hollyoaks, playing Lee Hunter. All these people who say ‘never’. Don’t they know the golden rule is never say never? I bet Alex Carter ends up on some reality show now; he’s jinxed himself!
That’s it for now. Join me on Monday for a full preview of all the week’s action in the soaps. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
